Where do I host my free eBook?
I would like to send my email list a free eBook I have written on tech. I do not want to host it on my own blog because it gets lost in the other blog posts and does not look as professional. I want the eBook to stand out on its own. Is there a place to do this and still get SEO credit?
There are many internet sharing place, where you can store your data.
If your blog is on WordPress, you could upload the PDF to your media files and then simply link to the PDF in your email (in other words, it doesn't have to be a whole page). If you want to gain some additional SEO for it, creating a post/page for it on your blog does make the most sense.
You can host your ebook on amazon for sale hoping the book is priced, right?
Alternatively, we can help you by designing and developing a new Landing page for your ebook which would be professional looking page on responsive HTML/css or on Wordpress CMS.
The page will contain marketing text describing the ebook with salient points and image of ebook which would stand out.
The landing page will have ebook with Buy Now button from paypal which when clicked will take users to paypal cart page and if you want we can also have opt-in form where users will enter their name and email and then pay for the ebook. Users email can be captured on auto responder like MailChimp as a lead capture.
We can make the page SEO friendly.

Hey Jack, you could simply upload it as a pdf in Google Drive/Dropbox/Box and share the link over email. Just make sure that the email has an excerpt and a visible anchor which takes them to the link.
I would suggest using Google Docs. You upload it, make it public or private for the group only, and just have to provide a link, for your email list, to access it. If you have a Wordpress blog, you can create a file specifically for downloading files. There's also other sites that can host it for you. A popular one is Mediafire (?) but a search online will reveal other places and using 'cloud' services, Evernote, Dropbox, may prove helpful but will require you to explore their program and the HELP button is awesome!.
